I voted for Split absolutely everything
If you have a small forum it would be ok to keep common thing together, but the forum is growing, so it's ok to separate things.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to study the proposal and to vote.

In the coming few days we will be moving forward with the plan to restructure our web hosting marketplace. In accordance to the will of the majority, each hosting product will inherit its own advertising forum.

Please stay tuned for further updates.

Update: I am happy to say that today we begin the big Marketplace move. Since we did not gain the critical mass of volunteers required to effectively move/copy marketplace threads into the new structure, we had to come up with an alternative solution. A custom solution was developed that allows for invisible processing of threads without having to move them all at once. It will take more time, but rest assured that we will have a team of people who will hopefully be able to go through over 16,000 threads efficiently (keep in mind that each thread has to be looked at individually).

I, for one, hope that everything will go through in a smooth way and none of you will experience any inconvenience in the process. In the meantime, you may continue to use the advertising forums as you normally would as it will not impact our work behind the scenes.

Wish us luck!

When we were starting the move, I predicted that this particular task will take 21 days to complete, judging by the results of the first couple of days. Today, on the 22nd day of processing, I am happy to say that all threads have now been individually processed. I expect to have the new Marketplace structure in place sometime over this coming weekend.

BIG THANKS go out to everyone who has assisted, participated and otherwise stayed connected through this process!

Off to the next challenge!

I am very happy to inform everyone that we have finally released our new Marketplace! You can now custom tailor your ads to specific products. The new web hosting advertising structure is as follows:

Shared Hosting Offers
This forum is intended for web hosting companies to publish their shared hosting special offers.

Reseller Hosting Offers
This forum is intended for web hosting companies to publish their reseller hosting special offers.

VPS Hosting Offers
This forum is intended for web hosting companies to publish their VPS hosting special offers.

Dedicated Hosting Offers
This forum is intended for web hosting companies to publish their dedicated hosting special offers.

Cloud Hosting Offers
This forum is intended for web hosting companies to publish their cloud hosting special offers.

Colocation Hosting Offers
This forum is intended for web hosting companies to publish their colocation hosting special offers.

Other Hosting Offers
This forum is intended for web hosting companies to publish their special hosting offers for services that don't fit in any other advertising category: email, backup/storage, streaming, adult, website builder solutions, SEO hosting, etc.


Primary rules remain the same:

- All members are limited to 1 (one) advertising thread per 7 (seven) days. (Except Cloud, where 1 ad per 30 days limit is in place).
- Thread bumping is NOT allowed, unless new information is added.


Enjoy it, folks. Just remember to advertise the correct product in the right forum.
